The Willows


Published November 6, 2013


LibriVox recording of The Willows by Algernon Blackwood.
Read in English by Phil Chenevert
"The Willows" is one of Algernon Blackwood's best known and creepiest stories. Many say it is his best and scariest. American horror author H.P. Lovecraft considered it to be the finest supernatural tale in English literature. He wrote in his treatise "Supernatural Horror in Literature", "Here art and restraint in narrative reach their very highest development, and an impression of lasting poignancy is produced without a single strained passage or a single false note." "The Willows" is an example of early modern horror and is connected within the literary tradition of weird fiction.
